-- grudgingly what you had to do, don't try it again. what happens if we have another deal, a debt ceiling deal or something that is of the same milk? >> i'm sensing both -- i can see both sides of the argument with this. i understand wanting to storm the castle, but get the foot in the door first, but at the same time, people like boehner realize they are dancing on the edge of the cliff here so to speak, in trouble of losing the entire base, ultimately the goal of the administration. they want to divorce the grassroots base from the plan party, looking two years ahead at midterm and looking at tactical issues and not the overall strategy, but a lot of this, nemo, goes back to the state level as well. who are voters going to elect to represent them in two years? how are voters holding elected officials' feet to the fire in their own state? we have to see more of that. ultimately, that's the pathway to get real change in the house, and that's really the way we're going to be able to enforce the values. neil: overcome the mainstream media, cast full of nuts and crazy and the occupy wall street g
ceiling by a few months but still has major budget cuts to deal with this spring. do you see his relationship with republicans improving at all as they try to fix this crisis? >> it is going to be a real confrontation, the republicans did blink. that's exactly right, bianna and said they don't want this over the debt limit that was supposed to hit in february and extend it, as he said, probably until april. the president will sign that which gives them a space to try to come up again with some kind of big budget deal before those across the board budget cuts hit in march and the government is set to shut down at the end of march. there is no question that these big fiscal issues, taxes and spending will define the first quarter of the president's second term. >> george, talk about this term, the second term curse. we -- reagan had iran-contra, nixon had watergate. clinton had monica lewinsky. why is it that they tend to go sour. >> lyndon jonls had to resign before he ran because of vietnam. ever since roosevelt and the amendment that limited his terms, presidents tend to run out
and the time we deal with the debt ceiling and we may meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and to put us on that path. but i didn't come here to talk about any of those important subjects today, because as important as they all are today we have a more urgent and immediate call and that is how to deal with the epidemic of gun violence in america. you all know the statistics better than anyone so i'm not going to repeat them. on that score, i owe an incredible debt of gratitude to you at the head table and those of you in the room. i know we don't have unanimity in this ballroom nor do we in any ballroom, but we all acknowledge that we have to do something. we have to act. and i hope we all agree, there is a need to respond to the carnage on our streets and in our schools. i hope we all agree that mass shootings like the one we witnessed in newtown 34 days ago cannot be continued to be tolerated. that tragedy has affected the public psyche in a way i have never seen before. the image of first graders, not only
issue is what the congress agrees to spend. all the debt ceiling is paying our bills. the cow is out of barn. let's allow us to let any business would do which is pay your bills. >> neil: why is wall street not worried about this. all your worries were trumpeted, why is the street not worried? >> i think we have learned to live in this environment. the reality is we have accepted what appears to be kick the can down the street politics. >> neil: what would you and your fellow ceos do and have a credible debt fix, you probably would have a heart attack, but what would you do? >> it would allow us to feel more secure where we're going. we need to know the rules of the game. that is what we're asking for. i think we as citizens and not business people first. the reality is we know the problems, debt and immigration and reality as a nation when we compete against nation states, how are we going to compete if we can't solve these problems? the issue is not the debt ceiling. the issue is the fundamental core problems of the country and the inability of our congressional leaders and our pol
, quote, we are not out of the woods yet, calling ongoing battles over spending cuts and the debt ceiling critical watersheds. >>> elsewhere, a troubling new report finds more than one in four workers are dipping into retirement funds to keep up with their current bills. apparently folks in their 40s are most likely to do that. >>> some good news, though, on the housing front. new numbers show home prices rose 7.5% in 2012, the most in six years thanks to improving demand and fewer foreclosures. >>> swiss group swatch is adding some sparkle to the brand, scooping up harry winston's luxury line of jewelry and watches for about $1 billion. >>> toyota has once again dethroned general motors as the world's top-selling automaker, selling just under 10 million vehicles last year. >>> coca-cola is taking some heat for its new ad campaign encouraging people to come together to fight obesity. critics say coke is just doing damage control to combat its own contribution to the country's growing obesity problem. >>> we'll find out what facebook's big mystery is in a much-hyped media event today. rumo
problem we need to deal with, martha, the misuse of the term default that emerged in the last debt ceiling crisis in august of 2011 when used on both sides of the aisle, when we reach the point the united states didn't have anymore borrowing authority that automatically meant default. it doesn't. that was a false definition then. it is a false definition now. we have enough money to operate essential components of this government that we can go on for a very long time. this isn't a crisis that hits a deadline that turns it into default. furthermore the economy of the united states, if we continue on this trillion dollar plus a year increase in our national debt does eventually hit a place of insolvency. that is what i fear. that is what most conservatives fear, martha. martha: but the president is basically saying to you, and the rest of the republicans in the house, that he is going to raise the debt limit. that the debt limit is going up. there won't be any negotiations over spending cuts that might offset that increase. there is going to be no negotiation. so what will you do? >> first
ceiling bill that was undermined from the beginning, no deal was reached, sequestration, massive cuts to our national security, our national defense. would be inflicted. and massive cuts to medicare. our leaders responded to me that , gee, the democrats will never allow the cuts to medicare, the sequestration to medicare, $300 billion or so, they'll never allow that. that's why we know the supercommittee will reach an agreement. i advised them that that would not happen. there would be no agreement. of course they're willing to have $300 billion or so cut to medicare because obamacare cut $00 billion from medicare, from our seniors' care, without a single republican vote. so the only way the democrats could run a commercial last year, 2012 with any sincerity at all saying, gee, republicans are cutting medicare, would be if they prevent republicans from reaching agreement with the president, democrats, and then they'll run in in commercials in 2012 and blame republicans and say, see, they didn't reach an agreement. they wanted to cut seniors and help their rich friends. as some of us m
's coming up in march? funding the government and raising the debt ceiling. >> oh, sure. yes, we can. i'm not too sure -- >> i understand, but do you think that's going to happen? >> no, i don't. i do believe that the house will postpone any consideration of anything resembling gun control until such time that the senate acts and i think the house is going to focus all of its attention on the debt ceiling and the sequestration. >> white house says they're not negotiating. yet senate democrats have win a letter basically begging the president to come up with a plan b. if the house republicans saying they're not going to raise the debt ceiling without they're going to use it as leverage and the president says no, then the president needs to come up with a plan b. do you think the president needs a plan b. >> well, plan b, to me, is the executive order and i know what the white house has said about that. you may recall -- >> when you say exec tiff order, do you mean the 14th amendment option? >> i've been here for two years now. they're saying ever since they had the last debate and i thin
congress to up the debt ceiling. of course what he said is, i know the republicans want to try to get some sort of spending cuts and stuff like that. i'll deal with it. just not over this. >>gretchen: so yesterday how has he changed now that he's president and he's been in a couple of these debt ceiling fights with republicans? another one is coming up in march. many people believe it is the only leverage the republicans hold in any kind of discussions about cutting spending. the president changing his tune now. listen to this. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. so to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd. >>steve: so it was irresponsible for president bush to run up a huge bill. and now that he's president, it's irresponsible if the congress doesn't give him the blank check. let's just point out a couple of things. president bush all by his lonesome racked up about $5 trillion in debt. in eight years. pre
. president, what's the deal with the debt? i've been hearing a lot about the debt ceiling. what's my family's share? i'm just a kid. when i'm a grownup, i understand it could be hundreds of thousands of dollars. could you guys please cut spending now? >> brian: if you want to know if that is going to happen today, see if rand paul's grandson will be in there or somebody like that. if there's a republican child or michael j. fox's character, michael keating. >> gretchen: that would be a good one. let's talk about what the new york state has done now and governor cuomo. he immediately went on the attack to try and pass very expansive gun law legislation because many people are saying he wants to run for president next time around and he also was very concerned about the issue. but some people are saying this morning that what they passed last night is full of holes. we want to show you a graphic of a particular kind of weapon that has been banned, a rifle. this is a baneli 1 rifle. the reason it's banned is because you can see how you hold on to the gun there. that's called a military style g
are some of the top republicans responding to president obama on this debt ceiling issue? >> reporter: well, jon, republicans are clearly uncomfortable with prominent democrats already talking about a tax increase when you consider the fiscal cliff deal raised taxes and every worker with a payroll tax hiring expiring and raised taxes on upper income americans even further, check your pay stub. a leading republican says responding to the president what's critical is getting spending under control. >> it's a compelling message saying we ned to pay the bills we've racked up. of it messes the whole point again. think of it in terms of a credit card. in you have a son or daughter who exceeds the limit, the first thing you do is rip up the card, the second thing you do is you say you need to change your spending habits. >> reporter: they say we need to a just what bills we are paying and how they are paying. jon: the issue of depending on disaster relief could provide tkraeupl drama there on capitol hill. >> reporter: speaker john boehner promised that the house would take up sandy relief bills
of the debt ceiling, but because they want a credible deficit reduction plan, and the president doesn't seem to be interested in actually coming up with a credible way to deal with the amount of spending we are doing in this country. bill: if that is the says, doyoo many me, do you think it can get through the senate. >> i imagine harry reid under the direction of the president will try to block these things. i'm going to continue to cosponsor senator haopl me's plan. we have a spending problem in this country. they know it in wyoming, families have to balance their budget every year. many states do. we do in wyoming. it's time for this senate and the house and the president to get serious about limiting our spending and specifically the wasteful spending that continues. in the last hour stewart varney and martha talked about some of the abuses that continue to go on. people know that their tax dollars are being wasted. we need to get the spending under control. bill: two days ago brit hume told us this will be bloody, this battle. will it? >> the future of our country is at stake here and t
republicans argue, this is an action forcing event. the debt ceiling increase is remind forea generation that the u.s. must tackle its debt and deficit problems. that is why there must be spending decreases, something they say wasn't a part of the deal the president just signed to avert, at least some of the fiscal cliff. tracy: here we go again. if february 15th is the big day, that would mean your poor wife will probably be alone on valentine's day, rich edson. god bless you. >> there are worse things. tracy: buy her a box of chocolate. >>> with earnings season getting in full swing this week our next guest says results could provide a base for the market to move higher especially because expectations are so darn low. joining us, margie battle, wells fargo advantage funds senior portfolio manager. earnings are low but doesn't bode well for what we'll hear out of these companies, does it? >> well i think some companies have done some preannouncements where they're expecting their growth to slow down because we should have some pretty low gdp growth for the next several months because of
